. the current debate is different, do not forget. after having surpluses at the end of the clinton administration, we went into debt almost a decade ago -- deficits almost a decade ago. the problems have gotten more difficult. at the moment, we have some interesting changes. you talk about 30 years since reagan. the country is getting older, so medicare, medicaid, social security costs more, but we have also had a lot of tax cuts. revenue is at the smallest amount since 1950. if we just got revenue back up to historical average, a deficit would be about $500 billion less than a career that is. the problem with that much more smaller. economists would then say that it is not much of a problem. the history is rather sordid, you are right. host: let me go to "the national journal." three reasons why mitch mcconnell will not save the fiscal cliff negotiations. the first one, most importantly, he is missing his dance partner joe biden. he has been kept on the sidelines during negotiations. some republicans think his absence is a sign that the president is not serious about closing a dea

to go over the cliff, have the automatic sequester cuts, take the tax increases, go back to the clinton era rates and that when the economy reacts, as it most certainly will, negatively, then he will blame the republicans for putting us into a recession. david: let's put a fine point on that. what we are suggesting here, they call it an outrageous suggestion, that the president is willing to send this country into a recession to get what he wants. you are really saying that? >> i think that he is willing to gamble. i believe that the president and his advisors have looked at the history of congress and they know that when we get a major market of bed, large drop in the stock market, any other reaction from the economy, that those members of congress will immediately concede. it is the same exact process that happened with tarp back in 2008. if you really look at it, what got us to where we are now to that debt ceiling of august 2011, in that case, we had the booties downgrade. it was sufficient to have everyone embrace as a posture idea. david: at one point, speaker boehner was in a mee

it even more challenging for us. >> outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton, who says that she's leaving, she wants to just rest, spend time with family and relax a bit, because she's been on quite the treadmill, is she resting up for a run in 2016? >> well, she's the only one who can make that decision. but i will tell you this, and i have known the clintons for a long time. i don't think there's anyone who's ever been as well prepared or better suited by temperament to be president of the united states than secretary clinton. if you think of her entire life, and she's a little bit younger than me, and she's had some great experiences. she was the first lady of arkansas, so she knows state and local politics. and she was a lawyer in a top-flight firm in arkansas, so she knows business law. and she knows the problems of business. first lady in the white house for eight years so she's seen all the domestic and foreign policy stuff from the inside. and then senator and she knows electoral politics, and she knows the country. and secretary of state, she traveled a lot as first lad

schools and public schools. there's cops in the schools program was initiated in the 1990s by bill clinton. u no whether an individual school wants that kind of protection or doesn't want that kind of protection is really up to the individual school. when we made that statement, when wayne lapierre spoke about a week ago, he suggested that what has to happen, and what should happen, is in every school district, administrators, teachers and parents should sit down and ask what's needed to protect the students in had that school. some will want police officers there. others of them will want private security guards. some places may want volunteers to do it. we're willing to work with everybody on those questions, but the fact is that is not a crazy suggestion. let's not get into an argument about who teachers unions are mostly interested in. but the fact of the matter is in some schools -- and we're not urging that teachers be armed, but some school districts are armed today. and if the school district and the teachers want to do it that way, that's really up to them it seems to me. >> that

to financing here. it's politically controversial. president clinton proposed taking some t.a.r.p. money and providing financing to manufacturers, but even if we're not directly loaning companies, manufacturers money, what we can do is at least provide the right tax incentives that if they are willing to export or manufacture, that they have those incentives. the final point i'd say is there's an awful law in the world trade organization which allows companies -- countries that have indirect taxation, the value added tax, to exempt their exporters from that taxation, and if you have the corporate tax like we do, we are not allowed to exempt our manufacturers from that tax. now, we established the world trade organization at a time where we really didn't think anyone was going to compete, and we wanted to encourage other countries to build their industries, but the world has changed, and i think on a bipartisan basis, we need to push for a change in those wto, the sanction between indirect and direct taxation when it comes to tax credits for exports. sure? >> if you've come across compani
